The Transition Program is part of a district wide effort to support student achievement. OUr founding superintendent, Dr. Floyd Buchanan believed in a "fair break for every kid." We hold to that ideal and to the idea that all kids can learn. As as educational team, we want to see every student reach their potential in mind, body, and spirit.
The Transition Program allows us the opportunity to focus on studetns who might not seek out suppport but would benefit from mentoring and in increased connection to school resources. We will provide students with the resources they need to be successful in the classroom, at home, and in the community.
Both Granite Ridge and Clovis North have a Peer Counseling class, where students are trained in listening/communication skills. Once the training is complete, students are then available to talk with peers who request to see a Peer Counselor. During these "sessions", students are able to talk about issues they may be struggling with; i.e., family problems, academic problems, peer problems, etc. Peer Counselors do not give advice but attempt to help the struggling student come up with good solutions. The Peer Counselors are supervised by Mrs. Michelle Miller (Clovis North) and Mrs. Katie Aiello (Granite Ridge). This is a wonderful resource for students who prefer to speak to someone closer to their own age. Click here for Peer Counseling website.
It is very common in both Middle School and High School for students to have conflicts with other students. Mr. David Oakley, School Psychologist, trains interested students in the Peer Mediation Process. When a conflict arises, these trained students conduct the mediation (supervised by Mr. Oakley), and hopefully a resolution will occur.
STUDENTS INTERESTED IN BEING A PART OF EITHER OF THESE EXCELLENT PROGRAMS SHOULD SPEAK TO THEIR COUNSELOR.
